So Monday I bought a BeBand at Target. $16.99 was really hard to spend on what seems to be just a piece of fabric, but I am so thankful I gave in. My pants haven't been buttoning very comfortably lately and maternity pants look like they are going to swallow me. & My dress pants have been retired since about week 12. So, I can still wear my wonderful pre-pregnancy pants and be comfortable! It's perfect!
What about the name Constance Elizabeth for a girl? Josh and I were watching North and South lastnight and George's love's name is Constance. I promised I'd never name my kid after a movie character, but I really just like it. It's just such a timeless name. We really thought we had our hearts set on Rebecca Jane, but I am beginning to reconsider. We'll see!
For a boy, it is definitely Austin Lee. Originally I wanted Austin Lane, but I decided against it. I really want to keep the name Lee going.
Today I began reading "How My Breasts Saved The World: Misadventures of A Nursing Mother" by Lisa Wood Shapiro. Mom bought it for me when I first got pregnant and I have just now gotten around to reading it. It has cracked me up so far; about her birth and how she just assumed it and breastfeeding would be easy because her grandmother said it was "so natural." I guess time will tell if she sticks with it or not.
And with that said, I do plan on nursing. I used to swear against it, but I feel a lot differently about it now. I just promise myself that I will never have to whip my boob out in public to feed my kid. Some women can and that's lovely. It just sounds horrendous to me.
Tonight is pepperoni pasta night - which is marinara sauce, penne pasta, veggies, seasoning, and pepperonis! It's definitely a cheap and easy dinner, but one of Josh's absolute favorites.
God Bless. =]
